a lot of pressure from washington stopped buying uranium oil you have a host of other countries that still do iran's biggest buyer now biggest buyers now are china india and japan and these countries are oil thirsty especially china so china imports of uranium oil india's imports of iranian crude were up thirty percent according to tanker arrival data western sanctions have it rains oil exports in two thousand and twelve leading to a very deep plunge in the arabian currency but continuous robust demand from its top buyers as well as the purchase of new tankers allow the red to unexpectedly boost exports late last year despite the sanctions the u.s. can't absolutely force those major economies especially china to stop buying from iran political and economic ramifications of such pressure would be significant but the u.s. government is trying here prompting those other countries to buy oil from washington's

allies saudis and qataris so you could imagine how happy the gulf states are about this bold new business coming in but washington is resolute to put more pressure on other countries to put forward more threats like cutting them off from the u.s. banking system so to many countries the situation starts to look more like blackmail than anything else. the sanctions violations and rhetoric surrounding iran are all proving great creative fuel for a web site cartoonists from the dinners yet another theme com in the online exclusive section of. the.

1:10 pm
intervention by the by the french is actually designed to to strengthen the illegal . government. of the junior officers which took in january carried out a coup and sensible reason for carrying out the coup was that they. were fed up with the fact that they didn't have enough results is true to deal with just a few thousand. rebels up in the north but their real agenda has been to to set up money to to the french and to the corporations mollies a place with enormous amount of of of wealth for your rainy and book site gold and so on and there's no doubt that french in canadian and upper interests are clearly interested in occupying that territory but when they're being tortured for all that when that be an exit strategy from holland says that this combat mission is going to be over within weeks does that not suggest that the french and other countries
1:11 pm
will simply leave the country and leave it now under that not in authority as well the mali mali is a common we've been entirely donated by the french currency control of the c.f.r. and indeed its economy has been in the hands of corporations for a long time i think we have to understand that this is also an attempt to to obliterate the already rather marginalize. movement with so-called twentieth movement the. team that oh who sought to liberate the northern part of mari as a result of many many decades of trails by the bomb of regimes over who promised resources over and over again and who then decided to establish their own their own state but. it's short let me decide yet you question the ambitions of the french intervention but what about the country itself obviously is in a pretty bad shape before this happened will mali not be better off after all of
1:12 pm
this in the long term. i don't believe that's the case i think that what this intervention does is strengthen the arm of a group of junior officers who took control of the state and who are just simply. done it i mean the reports we get from mali from bamako is how these troops just simply control everything they're not interested in any kind of development they're only interested in acquiring wealth for themselves they go in they rock banks with complete impunity they control the economy now with complete impunity they are now the sort of. i guess you know the servants now of all of the french and the u.s. africom is clearly a major population i mean let's be clear the super cool terrorists in the north are the especially the eight u.i.
1:13 pm
elements essentially catered by julian secret police the d.r. has been long in the u.s. is known as the french is known this for a long time it is entirely a group which is sought to provide a basis for the so-called war on terror it's really surprising that the french are a couple fighting this sort of so-called kind of group while in syria it is pretty it is supporting precisely the same kind of groups for us and we'll have to leave it there it's really interesting to hear perspective on this thank you very much indeed for your time live here on out in thank you for as many. hatred and racism in the israel football league hatred and racism they're all to take a look at the jerusalem team making its extreme right fans extremely angry this and much more after a short break stay with us. here

he's continues here and auti britain is removing the welcome sign from its doors as the government fears the flow of migrants into the country might skyrocket the authorities think the promotion u.k. as a great destination may have gone a bit too far. as one official put it the negative ad campaign about britain would help to dispel the myth that the streets in the u.k. all paved with gold and the politicians certainly are worried and they've got it wrong in the past the previous year was the year of the olympics and politicians
1:16 pm
trump and trumpeting great britain and how long john in britain is the best destination the world billions of pounds poured into advertising to really sell the u.k. but it seems that for immigrants potential immigrants from rumania and from bol garia the message is that britain isn't so great after all so a lot of people used to use that sort of as quite far cicle the fact that the government is willing to trash its own image and to admit that there are problems with the economy in disarray that there's a housing crisis and that there are problems with schools and hospitals everyone's been having a good old chuckle over the idea of a negative ad campaign and yes some people have actually said that it's quite insulting but remain ians and for vogue ariens but one newspaper has even suggested that people send in their own suggestions for what an anti britain poster would look like and the result has been really quite scathing and quite harsh to
1:17 pm
britain as a country we've got slogans that include u.k. yuck and come to britain and clean the toilets or even britain we haven't left ourselves because the public transport isn't running so people very sort of mocking at the same time but quite scathing about the country westminster is bound by law so they have to follow these rules and they have to allow anybody who wishes to come over in twenty fourteen to enter the country but a lot of citizens in the u.k. feel that it's insulting to those people and a waste of money having advertised britain previously. and as britain is highlighting all the downsides of living there remain a has launched its own p.r. campaign beautiful women that look like kate middleton and cheap booze appear in the list of the main advantages of living there is quite a collection of the posters on r.t. dot com at the moment. a jerusalem football team whose fans are known for chanting
1:18 pm
racist anti arab slogans assigned to muslims for the first time supporters are openly disappointed in the belief which some say is like welcoming in the enemy. reports on the boiling anger that's never far from spilling over. the games in there but the actions out here these really football team they told us of them is making headlines not for what it does on the pitch but what it does oafish the only leading team in the country never to have signed an hour player because of fan pressure h.r. is a bastion of israel's political white if i am none other then the don't want that the enemy will be a player in my team or you could say it. was. chance like this we hate all arabs only the target of the racist croquet no it doesn't happen often but tonight's matches between d'etat jerusalem and a local israeli arab team the police are not taking any chances which is why these
1:19 pm
gates are for the jewish fans and the other side of the stadium is for the palestinian supporters now the match has just finished and as you see the bay tajiri some supporters are waking up behind me but it will be another hour and a half before the police give permission to the arab fans to leave the stadium but keeping the two sides apart does little to dispel the hatred in march last year hundreds of baitullah fans rampaged through jerusalem or after a game chanting death to the arabs and randomly attacking arab workers orders are born you try to say that there are just a few resources five to twenty people but that's not right racism is in the d.n.a. of the steam it's in their blood. we fought to is a football legend in israel he was the first arab to play for the israel national team and to represent the country at the olympic games. i remember playing against the steam their supporters cursed me because i'm an arab muslim if this is not
1:20 pm
racism what is it that problem is about to get a whole lot bigger team owner russian israeli tycoon at a coyote guide imac recently announced his decision to hire two muslim payers from chechnya and. it's not good they're doing it for nothing these players from chechnya aren't with the jewish people they're not with the team we have different values. while other countries have faced international sanctions for racist and frank meant by fans israel has so far avoided such close scrutiny but fears are growing that the beautiful game there is slowly being turned into a source of violence racism and hatred policy r.t. . the russian foreign minister sergei lavrov has met privately with the leader of the key opposition group the syrian national coalition for the first time both agreed there was a mountain to climb before the rebel group would talk to the syrian government all of a joins me live from the german city of new nick where the talks were being held there's
1:21 pm
a meeting was very much anticipated wasn't. well that's right this is the biggest security conference really in the world and arguably syria is one of the biggest security issues in the world right now sergey lavrov sat down for a meeting with more as our who's the leader of the syrian national coalition the foreign minister of russia coming away searingly quite happy from the this meeting he said upon his arrival back in moscow that well the syrian national coalition seemed to willing to speak with the the current syrian government citing the fact that the whole reason that the national coalition exists in the first place is because they had previously refused to talk to president assad's however sergey lavrov did err on the side of caution saying that there was no guarantees that this dialogue would take place bringing up the point that the coalition is so fragmented
1:22 pm
they can hardly really agree with themselves never mind sit down to open the go see a sions with the current syrian government. now he addressed the security form there in munich as well that didn't syria feature there. well syria featured very highly in the address that was given by sergey lavrov to the the security conference he also told directly to russia's western partners as a second called for unity and trying to bring in an end to the violence and bring discussion to the forefront rather than talk of international intervention he did however raise a few questions towards russia's western partners suggesting that was it worth while pursuing their mantra of regime change in countries like syria at the expense of terrorist acts being cast a blind eye to as those acts take place against the civilian population and the the syrian army he also raised the point of the actions of russia's
1:23 pm
western partners in the rout wider middle east region and in north africa saying this although international intervention into a country may seem like a quick fix in the long run it could have far more devastating consequences not only for that country but for the the white a region as well and we also saw around two thousand people gather elsewhere in munich in protest against nato is continuing. growth what they see is they just continuing growth across europe that was relatively peaceful but it was also a topic that had been touched on by surrogate laughed it off in his address where he said that there was no real need for nato to expand in the way that it was in those two thousand or so people in the city also voicing the similar opinion. thanks very much indeed for that update he's peeta all of our lives. it was the bloodiest battle in human history and
